Any wish can be granted with a little bit of Christmas magic … As a wedding planner at Carrick Park Hotel Ailsa McCormack has devoted herself to making sure couples get their perfect day, but just occasionally that comes at a price – in this case, organising a Christmas Day wedding at the expense of her own Christmas. Not that Ailsa minds. There’s something very special about Carrick Park during the festive season and she’s always been fascinated by the past occupants of the place; particularly the beautiful and tragic Ella Carrick, whose striking portrait still hangs at the top of the stairs. And then an encounter with a tall, handsome and strangely familiar man in the drawing room on Christmas Eve sets off a chain of events that transforms Ailsa’s lonely Christmas into a far more magical occasion than she could have ever imagined …

A mysterious Victorian diary connects a young romantic in contemporary London to a woman who died a century ago. While visiting the Tate Britain museum, Cori Keeling can’t take her eyes off her favorite Pre-Raphaelite painting: John Everett Millais’s Ophelia. But it’s Cori herself who catches the eye of gallery worker and aspiring artist Simon Daniels. He’s immediately struck by Cori’s resemblance to the red-haired beauty in the nineteenth-century masterwork. While the haunting painting holds the power to bring Cori and Simon together, for Cori it has become an obsession—one that has led her to a mysterious diary from a century ago. Within its pages, a woman named Daisy hid a shocking secret. The further Cori reads, the clearer it becomes that Daisy will stop at nothing to be heard—and she’s crying out for Daisy to help her. As the ghosts of the past envelop Cori and Simon, they’ll discover the truth about the girl in the painting, the woman in the diary—and Cori’s own chilling connection to both of them.

Showalter's thoughtful, detailed introductory essay is a comprehensive analysis between Rosetti's novella and Craik's essays...the biographical portrait of Christina Rossetti's conflicts makes her a vivid example of the psychological and social barriers to the development of the female poets...her description of Dinah Mulock Craik stressed this woman's common-sense approach to ameliorating the position of the working-class woman in society...useful to students of feminist theory and of Victorian literature. -- Academic Library Book Review Cristina Rossetti was nineteen years old when she wrote Maude: Prose and Verse in 1850. Clearly autobiographical, the novel examines the heroine's endeavor to resist the notion that modesty, virtue and domesticity constitute the sole duties of womanhood. For the precocious young poet, the work was only one of several projects of her teens. Growing up in London as the youngest child in a gifted and unusual family of artists and writers, Rossetti had early developed a poetic vocation. But by the time she wrote Maude, the lively, passionate, and adventurous little girl who had hated needlework, delighted in fiercely competitive games of chess, and explored the country with her brothers became a painfully constrained, sickly, and over-scrupulous teenager. Maudemakes clear that at least some of Rossetti's affliction came from anxieties about poetic achievement, her wishes both to be admired for her genius and to renounce it as unfeminine. Often overshadowed by her brother Dante Gabriel Rossetti, Christina struggled to express her own independent authorial voice, and to resist a life bound by the constraints and demands of the traditional female role. Other late Victorian attitudes towards Anglican women's communities are brought out in On Sisterhoodsby Dinah Mulock Craik which appeared in Longman's magazine in 1883. Craik herself worked on the literary border between feminine gentility and feminist rebellion. In 1850, when Christina Rossetti was writing Maudewithin the confines of her family, Dinah Mulock was supporting herself and her two younger brothers by her pen. On Sisterhoodsconfronts head-on 'the woman question.' Asserting that women's role is to find beauty in their lives through altruism and good works--to be more or less 'good women'--Craik provides a radical solution to the 'woman question' by advocating the encouragement of Anglican sisterhoods, effectively women's co-operatives. For her, the strongest argument for such a sisterhood is the alternative life it offers to single women, with no outlets for their maternal emotions. The third text presented here, Craik's A Woman's Thoughts About Women, was a widely circulated manual of advice on female self-sufficiency for unmarried women, based on her own experience in a family left destitute by an eccentric father when she was nineteen. It addressed a pressing contemporary problem: the large number of urban single women who were well educated and qualified but for whom traditional employment offered no place. Craik understood that independence would come hard to middle-class women, yet she was optimistic about the ways women might re-educate themselves, abandoning false pride and learning to manage small businesses or conduct trades. Throughout her career, Craik masked her private feminist views with disdain for women's rights and criticism of women's public activism. Unmarried and self-supporting until the age of forty, she wrote about the problems of single and working women in over fifty popular novels, children's stories and collections of essays.
